Super easy Pudding Pie

Here is another super easy recipe that the McFarland's love.  It's light and very easy to make.  Hope you enjoy!!!



Pudding Pie Ingredients:

  • 1 package of your favorite pudding mix.  (We usually use vanilla or chocolate large boxes, but can be made with smaller boxes of other flavors!)
  • 1 large tub of cool whip
  • 1 graham cracker pie crust (we usually just buy the Keebler Ready Crust, but you could also make your own with graham crackers and butter)
  • 2 1/2 cups of milk (and you can even use the Lactaid milk if you have one like I do that is Lactose intolerant!  Works great and tastes the same!!!)


Directions:
  1. Mix pudding with 2 1/2 cups of milk, IF using the larger pudding boxes, like above photo.  If not use box recipe for pudding pie milk amount.
  2. Once completely mixed, add about 1 - 1 1/2 cups of cool whip (about half the large container)
  3. Once mixed place in pie shell. (Or I have even placed in a pie plate without a crust for my one picky eater who doesn't like the crust.)
  4. Next top with remaining cool whip.  (You can get creative and add coloring to your cool whip for a Holiday topping....or use a vegetable peeler to shred a candy bar on top for decoration!)
  5. Must now chill in a refrigerator for about 2-3 hours prior to serving to set for easier cutting!


This is one of those desserts that I don't mind the kids having during the week.  It lasts about 5-7 days (if the kids let it last that long!).  And it's great for a lighter, less filling dessert for big meals like Thanksgiving.  

Enjoy,
